Volvo makes it easier to find the right used truck

Volvo Trucks is today launching a new version of its Web-based search service for used vehicles – Volvo Truck Finder. New functions allow the customer to specify demands in greater detail and the search process is now faster and more user-friendly. This provides greater access to the full range of used trucks on offer.

“Many customers who buy used trucks are in a situation where they quickly need to expand their vehicle fleet,” says Anders Edenholm, business area manager for used truck operations at Volvo Trucks. “We have further developed the Volvo Truck Finder to even better meet the growing need of our customers for quick and secure used truck deals.”

New design and advanced search functions
Volvo Truck Finder has a new design for better overview of the information and a faster search process. The very first page allows the customer to immediately see what is in stock, listed according to type of superstructure. Here it is possible to select a free-text function or a detailed search function, and the updated search engine guarantees a quick response. The result is shown with large photos and detailed information of up to three trucks at the same time, making it easier to compare different objects.

In the Volvo Truck Finder, the truck customer can specify the search according to a large number of criteria such as facts about the vehicle, the type of superstructure and whether it should be specially equipped for a specific operational area. The new version features a number of functions that further increase the chance of finding the right truck immediately. For instance, details about the body and the vehicle’s application area can now be searched.

If none of the advertised trucks meet the set criteria, it is possible to activate an alert function. With this feature activated, as soon as a truck with the specified parameters becomes available for sale, the customer receives a message via SMS or e-mail and can then directly contact the dealer.

The widest range of used Volvo trucks
Volvo Truck Finder ( www.volvotrucks.com/truckfinder) has Europe’s widest range of used Volvo trucks. 300 of Volvo’s dealers are linked to the Web-based service, which covers 23 countries in Europe and is available in each country in its own local language. On average there are about 2,000 trucks in the database at any one time, with about 270,000 searches registered every month.
